I know I usually only post about food, but I wanted to share the transformation of my unfinished basement. I especially wanted to share my DIY bar top.
I started with a cheap piece of wood from Lowe's, trimmed the ends with 1 x 3's. Once completed, I stained the wood with a Golden Oak stain. Once stained, I coated the top and sides with 5 layers of poly.
Now it was time to mount the bar top to the wall. I decided to use steel conduit for the legs, was not impressed. I decided to box it in with wood, a window frame appearance. I hit hobby lobby and purchased some burlap. Once the burlap was mounted to the back, it was time to stencil. I printed out some outlines of pictures in relation to Louisiana life and cut the stencils. Placed the stencils in the squares and dabbed with acrylic paint. I think it turned out nice, different. Next, the kegerator, and base boards. :))))
